Preparation underway for participation in Concacaf Women’s U-20 championship
Final preparations have begun in earnest in Guyana and Canada as Coach Ivan Joseph and his staff prepare for the 2020 Concacaf Women’s Under-20 Championship in the Dominican Republic, beginning February 22.
The ‘Lady Jags’ play their first game against Nicaragua on February 23 and will look to field the strongest Under-20 Women’s squad ever for these encounters.
Assistant Coach Akilah Castello has been conducting training sessions for the Guyana based players, while Head Coach Joseph is conducting training sessions in Toronto for all of the internationally based players.
The competition for the final squad is expected to be very stiff as noted by Coach Ivan who said, “We have a very talented pool of players to choose from, and that will make our decision very difficult. However, at the end of the day my primary responsibility is to always select the best possible squad from all players available to me for the final team.”
The final squad will be selected from the list of eligible players below who have been working hard to impress the coaching staff. The final squad and alternates are expected to be announced in early February.
